Mitsushima Takayuki Residency and Exhibition: GOING OVER—Touching the Texture of the City
Tuesday, 9 August 2022 to Sunday, 25 September 2022
Tokyo Shibuya Koen-dori Gallery, Interactive Space
Mitsushima Takayuki, a blind artist, has been invited to produce works in residency on the theme of the city and to give a participatory hands-on exhibition, “Mitsushima Takayuki Residency and Exhibition: GOING OVER—Touching the Texture of the City.” Mitsushima has long explored the possibilities of “touch-and-see” painting. Through his works, Mitsushima will stimulate visitors’ senses to touch the texture of the city, including the sounds and smells that abound, and the texture of the ground that can be felt through the soles of one’s feet. With visitors not only experiencing the works at the exhibition venue but also participating in their creation, unexpected forms will surely emerge. This is a gateway to a world that is not only visual, but also an opportunity to experience the city that lies beyond sight.
